Sara's Face by Melvin Burgess
So I know we aren't supposed to post until after we have read the book... and Melvin Burgess is not one of my favorite authors, but this book is eerily fantastic. I am only about 1/4 of the way through and the two characters are so complex and I just don't want it to end.
Basically there is a character like Michael Jackson who has had so much plastic surgery that his face has pretty much collapsed and wears a mask all the time yet he is super famous and rich and has a mansion.
Enter Sara, a character with so many issues on so many levels. She has "accidentally" burned a small portion of her face and is in the hospital and meets MJ like character. She moves into his mansion where he promises to make her a star (her dream) and give her tons of plastic surgery.
Very very good so far. MI Thumbs Up Worthy??? You 'll have to read and see...
